List of Superhero Film Films and Movies : Vote for your favorites.
A superhero film, superhero movie, or superhero motion picture is a film that is focused on the actions of one or more superheroes: individuals who usually possess superhuman abilities relative to a normal person and are dedicated to protecting the public. These films typically feature action, adventure, fantasy and/or science fiction elements, with the first film of a particular character often including a focus on the origin of his or her special powers and his or her first confrontation with his or her most famous supervillain or archenemy.
Most superhero movies are based on superhero comics. By contrast, several films such as the RoboCop series, The Meteor Man, Unbreakable, The Incredibles, Hancock and They Call Me Jeeg are original for the screen, while The Green Hornet is based primarily on the original radio series and its 1960s television adaptation, and both Underdog and The Powerpuff Girls are based on animated television series.
After a long series of flops, the most notable and successful superhero films since the year 2000 are Fox Studio's X-Men franchise, Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy, Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy, the films set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe starting with Iron Man and the films set in the DC Extended Universe starting with Man of Steel. Even though it was panned by moviegoers, Ang Lee's Hulk also changed the directorial vision of superhero films to being more respected among critics, such as Roger Ebert, and directors. Most superhero films are also action films, but there are some exceptions such as Unbreakable, which is a superhero drama.Read more...
